My ultimate goal is to influence educational policy that addresses the challenges of underserved populations and to do so on a global scale. Improving education requires that we transform all aspects of the field (pedagogical application, teacher preparation, information management, multi-faceted processes, public understanding and perceptions, leadership practices, community and business involvement, etc.) Authentic transformation is a big job and my contribution to the field is to take on that challenge. My story will be, “she co-created a sustainable world by contributing improvement solutions to public education.” Each day I awake I am reminded that if I’m still here, I’m still on my journey.
In all of my professional activities I AM the change I want to see in the world.

Dr. B.’s Philosophy
Dr. Brown’s philosophy is based on 3 simple ideals.
- People are the heart of an organization. The excellence of a system cannot exceed the excellence of its people; therefore, it is imperative that every individual within the system owns his or her responsibility of personal development. It is equally important that leaders are equipped with the tools to cultivate a culture of learning.
- Processes are the heart of our work. In order to engage in continuous improvement, it is critical that we are cognizant of the strategy and approach to our work. It is when we are able to track our processes that we are empowered to determine our challenges and plan to eradicate them.
- Results—improved results—are the heart of our purpose. The measurement of our individual and collective growth along with our improved work processes is demonstrated through our results. Therefore, a keen focus on how we do what we do in addition to always working toward excellence is the recipe for our goal: high student achievement.
